Tom Lodge’s time-hopping two-hander Like You Hate Me officially premiered last night (25 April 2019) at London’s Lion & Unicorn Theatre and the buzz is brilliant. Here’s a first-look at the show’s production shots and trailer. Plus a brilliant first review! Time to get booking – it must finish next Saturday 4 May!
This is not a play about love.
It’s about loving/losing yourself/someone else.
It’s about how much you give to another person and how much you can’t ever get back.
